I don't understand why so many people have stopped coming. The Agar/Kath/Rule malarkey is over, we have an owner and coach who are both passionate about developing the club. We've been playing much better rugby than the last few seasons. You'd have thought the crowds would have at least increased a bit over the course of the season, I mean we used to get between 15-17000 on average a few seasons back!


Sundays?

More things to do on a Sunny Summer Afternoon.

So they brought a tenth of what we took to their place. I know its expensive for away supporters coming to the KC but you expect more than 250 to travel from west yorkshire on a sunday afternoon. That said, the hudd turnout in the CC was half decent. The north stand is sparce every home game apart from the derby, sad, but I can't see it changing anytime soon.

Still take my hat off to the Hudds fans who did bother turning up.

I think you underestimate how much you are charging away fans! £20 I wish!!!!
We bought our tickets on thursday- according to FC that doesn't qualify as in advance so had to pay full price! Me and my other half were charged £25 each my 74 yr old mum was charged £19 (now that really is disgusting!) and the kids are £15 each. £5 for parking so that's £104 the five of us handed over. That's before considering any food/drink and petrol!
A day out is costing between £150 and £200!

And that photo is a complete joke is a joke since there were 8 of us sat together not on there!

As many as 200?


Never in a million years is that 200 fans. Thats the difference with both Hull clubs. Both teams are quite prepared to travel long distances yet this isn't in anyway reciprocated. This was Hull KR on Friday night, much longer journey then Shuddersfield and on an evening as opposed to a Sunday afternoon.
